THE TWO power houses of World Snooker will battle it out on Sunday in a bid to reach the World Cup final.

China and England have been drawn to face each other in one of Sunday’s semi-finals while another team from from the home country will take on neighbours Thailand in the other final four match.

England, represented by stars Judd Trump and Barry Hawkins, will face China’s B team and reigning champions Zhou Yuelong and Yan Bingtao after the English pair beat Northern Ireland pairing Mark Allen and Joe Swail in the quarter-final. China’s B team beat Belgium pair Luca Brecel and Jeff Jacobs to reach the last four.

The other semi final will see China’s A team, consisting of Ding Junhui and Liang Wenbo, take on Thailand duo Thepchaiya Un-Nooh and Noppon Saengkham.

It is possible that China’s two teams could battle it out in the final should they win their semi-final matches. China have two teams because they are the host nation with the event being held in Wuxi.
